Have you ever tried watermelon gazpacho? It’s a delicious, cold summer soup much like tomato gazpacho. But in this case, the watermelon takes the place of the tomato. Watermelon is light, juicy, and a little sweet, making this gazpacho a refreshing summer meal.
You’ll want to make it early in the day so that the flavors have a chance to infuse and blend together. Leave it overnight in your refrigerator and you’ll enjoy the taste that much more!
It’s easy to make, and perfect for a light meal on a hot summer day.
1 watermelon (about 2 lbs.) with rind removed, chopped
¼ cup packed cilantro leaves (plus more for additional garnish)
3 tbsp. lime juice, fresh squeezed
2 tbsp. packed mint leaves (plus more for garnish)
1 English cucumber (or regular cucumber if you cannot find an English cucumber)
2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
1 jalapeño, stemmed and chopped (or less for less spice)
1 large red heirloom tomato, cored and chopped
1 shallot, chopped
Sea salt to taste (Celtic Grey, Himalayan, or Redmond Real Salt)
Black pepper to taste
Combine the watermelon, cilantro, lime juice, mint, olive oil, cucumber, jalapeño, tomato and shallot in blender and puree until smooth. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
When ready to serve, garnish each bowl with fresh mint and cilantro leaves.
Serve and enjoy!
